Skandia has added a number of fund links investing across a range of asset classes to its life and investment platforms.
From 1 October, the AA-rated HSBC Corporate Bond fund has been available on the Skandia Life and MultIsa, MultiPep and MultiFund platforms.
Both the A-rated Henderson Preference & Bond fund and £11.5m M&G High Interest fund are now available through Skandia's life and fund links, including Multipep and multIsa.
Norwich Union's Norwich Property fund will be available through the group's life and fund links, but not Pep or Isa, due to regulatory restrictions on the asset class within these wrappers. Skandia has also signed up Investec American and New Star High Yield Bond fund to its life and fund offerings, although neither will be available until early November, when their respective offer periods have ended.
Angus Duncan, head of investment sales at Skandia, said the fund links reflected current sentiment on equities with four of the five products investing in fixed interest, cash or property.
